The weather is going to soon change and be harsh!! Unfortunately, some people are choosing to not sleep indoors. In the past few years, I have seen the homeless community grow. People have become homeless overnight. It’s a hard period.
What you can do can be small. An hour of a a week or small donation. Go the store and buy socks, underwears, gloves, hats, scarves. You can go to a church and donate them. If the one you go to doesn’t take them, the should direct you to where. Also, volunteering to hand out food. Some outreach organizations does that in NYC. Like the Midnight Run.
Well, relief is what is great and more than helpful. It brings love and encouragement to a harsh lifestyle. This is the same lifestyle I came from. I slept in Penn Station on the dirty floor to wake up to a bag of food, bottled water, gloves, hats, clothes. It brings light to a hurting heart.
Pray and act. It does good to our difficult world.
